Hi im only 26 weeks and ive been to the hospital a few times already because i was having "braxton hicks contractions" as they called it, my syptoms have changed to really bad lower back paing and some more cramping. and lots of pelvic pressure? I hate going back in to the hospital cause i dont want them to think im crazy lol -- What should i do i cant get comfy at all, and i know its way too soon for our little one to come!!!

I had that happen with my son and I was in real labor after like the fifth time I went , my nurses were stupid. I would just go in anyways . Do what your body tells you to .

I would go get checked out even though. I know you're over 20 weeks but it's never too early to go into actual labor or something else be wrong. Since losing my son in Dec I can say that next time I get pregnant I will not be taking any back pain with a grain of salt. I wouldn't care if they got tired of seeing me! It don't hurt to go in and get checked especially if the back pain is getting worse.

It is better safe than sorry. I kept going to the doctor (well the ER) and they kept telling me everything was fine just so they could get me out of there. Well sure enough something was definitely wrong. When I went in there at 14w they told me my son was alive and had a heartbeat. So not true. My son died at 13w and I didn't find it out until 16w. So I will never again let a doctor tell me everything is fine until I see it myself. Don't let them push you around and make you feel like you're overreacting. It's your first baby. You want the reassurance that everything is fine.

I too am 26 weeks and i have been having teh pelic pressure, back pain cramping on and off for months already ! The feeling is concerning for sure but whe its REALLY time for baby to come out...you WILL know the difference :) Just try different positions, what works best for me is being in my huge recliner and sitting slightly sideways to take teh pressure off my pelvis. The back pain and cramps seeem to be worse whe I lie down though :( Its tough...just try different things until you find what works for you . Good luck.
